Abstract (en)

[origin: US6039679A] An exercising dumbbell comprising a tubular body with attached "U" shaped handle for use with two hands. The body contains a D.C. motor which is geared to a stationary central shaft and which may rotate around the shaft to generate strong vibrations. Batteries are contained within the handle and motor speed is varied from zero to maximum by pressure activated switches under each hand. Function switches on the body reverse motor direction, permit one-hand, both-hand or hands-free operation, provide music through an included speaker, and generate an exhilarating train of pulses.
